I already lost, lately I was just playing freeroll to gain more experience and got some money to start again, and yesterday I won the first place in a freeroll today I will start playing small tournaments.
Same. Multiple times. Play bigger, lose bigger.
It stings for a while, but you get use to it. Obv I recommend bankroll management, but I also like to take shots.
Yea I like to take shots not saying I would blow 3k or more just dont see myself grinding millions of hands just to generate massive rake and maybe squeeze a small profit. Also grinding MTT is a life commitment since they take like 6 hours at min.
I already lost several BR of various sizes ... if we are in the game it is necessary always to start over ... always revalued our mind set, our positions and risk unnecessary ... I usually build my BR from scratch ... only in freeroll ... difficulties help us to value our achievements and better manage our BR

I have two years to lose the Br and did not make a cash out from of one Room PokerStars.I played 4,800 tournaments, I consider my game a hobby game and do not get upset.Total profit - $ 800.To raise the BR you need to make a decent Deposit, play bankroll, climb the limits.And everything will be fine with you.
With min and maxs from rock to maniac how do you BRM? Like 20 buyins for rock at 9 max cash game and 70 buy ins max for maniacs 9 max NLH
Your VPIP is not really a contributing factor to bankroll management, your ability at the game is the major consideration. In cash games you want to look at how many BBs you win per 100 hands and in SNG/MTTs you want to look at your ROI.
For example if you have a 1% ROI playing spin and goes -you will require a much bigger bankroll than a reg format sng player with 12% ROI.
Of course, I will start over. I don’t see any problems in that I can lose a bankroll. Maybe because it is now small, but I have already made deposits and lost all the money. Then I won and returned my money. You can not give up under any circumstances!
I lose (spend) my bankroll every month at least once on one of my 6 pokersites.
As it is easy to build it up again from the scratchboard, my BR is my "gambling money" and so I have every month 100$ somewhere to go to the casino and best thing is: I GOT THIS MONEY BY PLAYING POKER!!!
So yes to start again, no to deposit and deposit and deposit.....
The whole point of bankroll management is to avoid having to start all over, and avoid losing all of your roll.
If you are simply trying to "hit it big" then you are probably doing too much gambling and not enough poker playing. I guess it just depends on what you are trying to do. Are you trying to have fun and get better at the game, or are you trying to "hit it big"? If you are trying to do the latter without first doing the former, there are good odds that you will be frequently losing your entire roll and having to start over.
If you practice good bankroll management, you can still lose your entire bankroll. If you started with too small a roll, or you are neglecting to study at all and are not improving much, you may have to start all over with a reload, if you can afford it. But the whole idea of the rules of bankroll management is to keep the risk low and the potential for bankruptcy to a minimum. That is why you should start with an adequate bankroll and keep your wagers/buy ins to a very small percentage of the total bankroll.
Everyone is different; some want to hit it big and some want to play and have fun at low stakes before trying to move up to the bigger games and bigger potential prizes. The main thing should be only playing with money that you can afford to lose. Some can afford to lose more than others, and that's fine. Don't go by what other people are doing, go by what you want from the game and how much you can afford to play with/lose.
I've had to start over more times then I can count.... what I've started to realize is focus on the games/sites you can beat.... while consistently adding to your bankroll to play higher stacks.... once you have around 5k on each site you can stop adding and play almost any game you want. All while focusing/playing on the sites your a consistent winner.

As someone who only follows very strict Bankroll management, if I end up losing my entire bankroll, either over a long period or a short one, it would mean I suck and should not be playing anymore. If I can not play the smallest of stakes without going broke, then I would probably just give it up and find a new hobby.
That being said, by following proper BRM and using a basic TAG strategy, I have managed to grow my small bankroll by 300% in the past six months on both sites I play at.
I only play NL2, 0.10$ SnG or Sub 1$ Micro-MTT games and satelittes, and take advantage of the many promotional freerolls offered by the poker rooms that I frequent. I will move up and down stakes according to BRM.
I find discons and other such problems tend to increase 800-3000% when employing solid BRM with small bankrolls therefore would suggest nothing less than around 250$ starting bankroll not exceeding one hundredth for any single stake.if anyone could possibly lose strictly following that system,there's a lot more than poker they really shouldn't be doing,like voting,driving,cooking and changing channels on the television to name but a few.
I've lost my bankroll many times, and I have often rebuilt it by playing Freerolls tournaments. I always keep going. Now with the help of Cardschat and the Freeroll tournaments it offers, it will be easier for me to build it and save it. I will try again and again but I will not make a deposit.
